(WDAY TV) - 8 homes in rural Cass County got pre-evacuation notices on Wednesday, meaning they should prepare for a possible evacuation.

The homes are downstream of the Absaraka spillway, northwest of Casselton. The spillway along the Swan Creek eroded during last year's flood and appears to be doing the same thing again this year.

The National Weather Service says about a foot of water was going over the emergency spillway. Cass County Sheriff's Deputies tell me that National Guard members are stationed there, keeping an eye on it.
